poll has romney ahead 50 to 48 in a buckeye state virtual tie yet there obama leads by two points in the real clear politics average of the recent ohio polls. romney went ahead with afternoon rally in iowa, but that is it for at least a day as the campaign takes a backseat to the storm. romney closing argument for final stretch is dubbed day one, job one, referring to the economy. he promises tax relief. north american energy independence. to repeal obamacare, block military cuts and balance the budget among other things. all of that is on hold. romney tonight will spend overnight in dayton, ohio, returning there without planned or scheduled campaign events tomorrow. it will likely be relief oriented but not clear it will take place in iowa. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign does
seem to indicate that, in fact, romney has succeeded to at least some degree depending on the poll in closing the scene december gap for women preferring obama over him. this week, indiana republican senate candidate talked about having no exceptions at all in the case of abortion. take a look. >> life is a gift from god. even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that god intended to happen. >>chris: senator johnson, mitt romney disavowed the comments and he has tried to walk them back but it brings up the bigger question, why should a woman who believes freedom of choice when it comes to abortion, why should she vote for mitt romney who said he would like to see roe vs. wade overturned and wants to cut off funding for planned parenthood. >>guest: i had one person talk about the abortion issue during the campaign. what is moving people in wisconsin, romney is an individual when faced with the legislature controlled 85 percent by democrats was able to work with the democrats. you look at his record versus president obama who has been totally unable to
campaigns have been battling for months, over women, and the polls seem to indicate that in fact romney has succeeded to at least some degree, depending on the poll in closing the gender gap when it comes to women preferring obama over him but this week, indiana republican senate candidate richard mourdock talked about having no exceptions at all in the case of abortion. let's take a look: >> live is a gift from god and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation, of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> chris: senator johnson, mitt romney disavowed richard mourdock's comments and, he has tried to walk them back but it brings up the bigger question. why should a woman who believes of freedom of choice when it comes to abortion, why should she vote for mitt romney, who said he'd like to see roe vs. wade overturned and who favors cutting off all federal funding for planned parenthood? >> well, chris, first of all, i have heard one person talk about the abortion issue during the entire campaign. what people in wisconsin, what is moving the needle here is they
the program. romney is up by one point or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important, but much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state did it only became a presidentially democratic relatively recently. >> when bartlet came along. "west wing." >> unless he gets a surge that covers most of the states, it if he loses ohio and iowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table in everyone. >> you get confused unless you are i just keep trying to figure out the permutations. everybody agrees that the path is clear and simpler for obama and romney. it is ccbc the combination -- >> a lot of talk about potential ties. >> which i think it's a reach. but let's be blunt, the momentum is in romney's direction and has been since the first debate. the margin is closing, rather than expand come in all of these battle grou
to the polls-- to the storm, rather, we will have the latest polls for you and the big question now, is romney losing momentum? we'll ask andrea about that and of course, we're following sandy throughout the program. stay right there. [ male announcer ] this is joe woods' first day of work. and his new boss told him twongs -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll wk his way up from busser to waiter to chef before opening a restaurant specializing in fish and me from the great northwest. he'll start investing early, he'll find some good ople to help guide him, nd he'll set money aside from his first daof work this last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. frotd ameritrade. >> well, today's big storm on the east coast taking some attention away from the election and it's only eight days away. and both candidates are more focused on hurricane sandy. obviously, all of us across the country are concerned about the potential impact of hurricane sandy. this is a serious and big storm. charles: and also appears to be slowing town mitt romney's mom
the director of the mason-dixon poll to say this. romney has nailed down unless something changes. romney's going to win florida. and he made that prediction based on the math of the i-4 corridor. you guys, can you lose the i-4 corridor and win florida? it's nearly impossible, right? >> well, we're not going to lose the i-4 corridor, and we don't agree with those numbers. and if you look at the enthusiasm just reflected in the turnout in the i-4 corridor, we really -- we beat the republicans in early voting this weekend in hillsborough county, which is one end of the corridor. we beat them in orange county as well. and if you even look at seminole county, which also has a significant republican registration advantage, we beat them, just barely, but we beat them in early voting turnout. we're running up numbers that are going to ensure that president obama carries the i-4 corridor and carries the state of florida. i mean, we just have a ground game that is really superior to them. and we have enthusiasm that has blown the doors off of early voting, even better numbers than 2008. >> we will
for me. maybe that will help mitt romney. >> and where do the polls stand? because romney has had more momentum, but things still seem roughly tied? >> in the national polls, it looks like romney has a lead. in the state polls, it looks like the president is doing better. but the state polls, the president is only getting about 46% to 48%, not a great number for an incumbent. and also mitt romney seems to be doing better in other places where he wasn't expected to do well like minnesota. so it's an extraordinarily close race and i think you have a situation where both sides think they'll win but aren't really positive about it. >> stewart, from an investment point of view, who would you prefer to see take this on tuesday? >> the way we look at this is both short term and medium to longer term. short term, if romney gets in, then the market could actually suffer a little bit if he starts to be a bit more conservative on the fiscal side, obviously there is talk bernanke won't get a second term. who will come in. in terms of longer term, america has to tackle the fiscal deficit. if it con
. >> fox news alert from the campaign trail. a brand-new rasmussen poll showing governor mitt romney now leaving president obama among likely voters in the critical battleground state of ohio. this is a first in this race. it is a significant shift from just a week ago when the president governor romney were tied at 40%. in most polls, the president had been leading governor romney in ohio. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and also the host of the show "power play." chris, some events are being canceled because they are not being affected by hurricane sandy, but how many times have we talked about the likely voter polls, talking about how it will really matter or not romney loses ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without it. rasmussen came out with a poll showing that governor romney is taking the lead their. >> well, yes, here is the thing. we have seen all along that mitt romney could not quite close in ohio and he has continued to do better in places like florida and virginia. ohio has posed a difficulty, he couldn't close the gap with the president. what
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
. >> the latest "washington post"/abc tracking poll, 49/48, mitt romney by a point which is -- >> we've had for the last three days of tracks we've had it 49 romney, 48 obama. it's a statistical tie. we haven't had it any more of a three-point difference. >> we checked with the department of labor, and contrary to some reports including one of the major newspapers on-line there is no problem with the jobs report, the jobs report for good or bad is coming on friday. >> which -- >> they've collected the data. >> which we all thought was going to be the big thing before the election, was this last jobs report. now it's a secondary story by far compared to the storm. >> chris cizilla, thank you so much for everything. >> sure. >> and hurricane sandy is gaining steam. this massive storm is now targeting the eastern seaboard. we'll be live next right here on "andrea mitchell reports." hi, i'm amy for downy unstopables in-wash scent boosters, here with my favorite new intern, jimmy. mmm! fresh! and it's been in the closet for 12 weeks! unbelievable! unstopables! i'll show you how! ♪ just shake t
and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the speech how he was thinking of others in swing states. the danger is i don't think he'd do this with his own lips. his campaign staff answering questions and talking about ways romney is reaching out to governors. there's nothing that this guy who hasn't been in government for seven years can do to emil rate this storm or nothing -- nobody benefits if he's in close touch with chris christie. chris christie needs to be in touch with the president. they can try to muddle it, but it's a minor risk. it's less
tracking poll out. it shows the president aahead of romney 49% to 48%. that's a three point swing in his direction from last week. before we get to politics, i want to bring in meteorologist bill karins to give us the latest on the storm. bill, where sandy is taking a slight left turn, right? >> she started the turn. this is the amazing part of the storm, history-making part of the storm. what's incredible is this is still a hurricane towards the end of october, and not only is it still a hurricane, it looks like it strengthens before landfall. we have 10 hours to go before landfall. this may not be a hybrid storm at landfall. it may be a plain, old hurricane. look at what i'm talking about on the screen. i circled the eye of the storm. you can still clearly make out the eye, and there's new thunderstorms of convection firing up on the northwest corner of the eye. if that holds together to landfall, we will have a hurricane landfall. those are semantics. it doesn't really matter. that's for the history books. regardless, you have hurricane-force winds on the coast whether it's a hybrid o
at -- by the way rude, did you know i just saw this over the weekend. the cbs poll that showed romney winning by a wide margin in the first poll. did you know that obama in the same poll won the third poll by an even larger margin. but you make a good point. as to how it was covered. with obama, it was covered like a disaster of epic proportions never before seen in politics. and it was not. you know. yes, he was not on his game. anybody can say that. this is -- as you said, you're describing romney in the third debate. he either agreed completely or threw out a word or two that looked like he looked things up on his smart phone. romney's sole plan seems to be he'll be there and not obama. no doubt america will seem stronger with a man named willard in charge. somebody did the graphic but everything he said but i'm white. >> yeah. that's pretty much it. and you know, i just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell
close. slight romney lea now with the rasmussen poll. people could get turned off and not want to vote for somebody, if they are bombarded with negative ads. do you think romney made the right call with the timing of suspending the campaigning? >> greg: i guess so. makes sense. more about the media using the storm as a way to pollster obama. bolstering obama through like a full charm offensive. first, he will be there with the shres rolled up. then the tide will be gone. then the jacket by the third day. the fema offensive in boxers doing a briefing. i think a lot of this coverage is frightening. to the kids at home, don't be scared. monsters in the sky only come down to eat you if you talk back to your parents. >> eric: you make a good point, bob, turn-out. clearly across the board, you hear people saying a high turn-out would benefit president obama. >> bob: yeah. >> eric: a storm will put a damper on turnout. >> bob: probably not seven days from tomorrow. but damper on turn-out for people voting early. >> kimberly: maryland. >> bob: they're turned out already. >> dana: people who do
romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this path. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters pased. >> college graduates should not have to live out their 20's and their child to bed rooms staring out at fading obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. gerri: doesn't that crystallize the problem for young voters? >> sure when you have 15 percent unemployment in you have 50 percent of them who cannot find jobs once they graduate. stayinon the counter. the problem is, though, you still have the recent poll, a harvard poll has obama leading men romney by 90 percentage points in tat age demographic and 18-29. these are your classic case obama's zombies. barack obama, is campaigning in his actual policies are going to make it a lot harder for young peopleo find jobs and pay up this enormous debt a
. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how big of a turnout they got. if he is not on the trail to have that activity happen, then the early voting has to happen by its own but without that strong push from the candidate. >> they will send bill clinton, michelle obama. they will have other people to do this. >> schieffer: john what, about that? the president can't be out there on the stump if there are people whose lives are in danger? >> no, on the other hand, if you're exercising political leadership from the white house, that shows you're in command and in charge. i think it also can show people he's a strong active incumbent. there's another political storm i worry about, bob, and it's one we can't predict because it's happened before in florida 2000. if this election is close enough, we could be going to recounts, justly, florida, and not just in one state but several states. we now have 10,000 lawyers monitoring the polls this election. and i fear that with provisional ba
, now 191. and let's turn now to of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the polls by a significant margin, but four points. yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also needs nevada where president obama right now is up by two and a half points. we are giving that to governor romney. see how this scenario plays out. the president would have to take the state of michigan where he is up by four points. let's give those 15 points to him. wisconsin where he is up by two. this is one of the most -- obviously one of the most important states. ohio where
that shows governor romney up by four points, 50-46. you have the rasmussen daily tracking poll that has governor romney up 50-47. the real clear politics average though is closer, that has 47.7 for governor and 46.8 for president obama, so, erin, real clear politics, you guys have this as a virtual dead heat? >> we do. in the national polls right now, it looks like mitt romney is ahead. he's poised to have a victory in the popular vote, if the election were held today. but if you look at the a lot of the state polls, it looks like president obama is headed for a victory in the electoral college. it may be that the hurricane, the big storm is the october surprise that could swing the election either way. but president obama is tracking ahead of mitt romney in many of the important swing states and the big question is, does president obama stop campaigning because will he take a big political hit if he starts doing some of that? and mitt romney has to worry about going into any of the the other states that will make him look too political for campaigning in the middle of the storm. that's
campaigns. >> we are not ready for the yet. but who do you see winning the election? >> i see romney winning the election. i see him generally ahead in the polls and i see him, i see president obama at fren percent. that is not because people don't know him. you have 53 percent last time. 100 percent of the people know him and observed him closely for four years and you can't help but observe the president closely and only 47 percent are voting for him f. the election were held would he have the 270 vote majority nailed i think so but not sure. we have seen the situation where winninglet popular vote didn't win the electorial vote. but he's clearly within reach of 270 electoral votes. >> i have a lot confidence and you are usually right when everybody else is wrong. we'll fiped out how it turned out. >> we'll see if i am red-faced. >> i am sure you will not be. >> michael marone. new emaims who -- was sent the e-mails of the benghazi attacks. the smoking gun evidence that proved it was not a spontanous atact. go to my website and tell me what you think. sign up for my facebook page and follo
for the election a week from tuesday and it is a dead heat. the polls are trending toward romney and the lead that the president had with women is gone . what can happen in the next few days that change things and give either candidate an advantage . joining me is former advisor to bill clinon and president of the polling company kelly ann conway . good to have you here . kelly ann, let me start with you . these states that are in a dead heat. if ohio breaks for obama, what happens to give romney a chance to win. >> romny is it way ahead in the popular vote and that is worth somethingine in the electoral college situation . in the battle of early voting and late momentum. i rather be romney. it gives hum a shot at state that is obama. wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire and maybe even nevada can get back in there because the republican candidate is doing well. that's the way you play with the map. if you have to cede ohio. you are cashing in and realization that for a president who got 56 percent of the female vote as the nonincumben in a two gender race is significant. >> doug, kelly ann menti
and they said our latest polls -- and it was another national tracking pal that showed mitt romney ahead. why is america paying so much tenths to the national tracking polls? do they mean anything? >> no. there clearly was a trend towards mitt romney five weeks ago, we were all pretty happy about the obama polls. i think right now there was clearly a trend towards mitt romney after the first debate, that looks like it has stalled out, where most of us thought a year ago, we would have said this is going to be a close race. it's pretty much the floor for any republican, and now we're seeing mitt romney at 48 to 49%, and that makes sense to me. you start looking around the states, and the president is in pretty darn good position. >> bill: right. the emphasis to me -- they keep talking about the national polls because they have to have a horse race right? >> right. >> bill: but we do not -- people have to understand we do not elect a president by a national vote. >> that's right. >> bill: it's state by state by state. >> so if you run the store up in texas. it doesn't matte
romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like iowa, states like nevada, states like ohio that mitt romney needs and we'll see whether they are right. but as of now, it appears unlikely that things are going to move very much over the next couple of days because romney's canceled campaign events tomorrow, so has the president. >> when we talk about the sort of being a dead heat in the popular vote, what do we know about the way the electoral vote may be breaking one way or another, given the way the polls have gone in the past week or so. >> the electoral vote count is what i was talking about with respect to the battleground states. the president has more states where he is either securely ahead or leaning his way than mitt romney does, and so he's got less distance to make up to the finish line in the electoral battlegrounds. for example, mitt romney's leading in the state
of the party will lash out at them this is an anchor around mitt romney. one of the things our polling has shown is that mitt romney has better favorable ratings than the republican party overall. the democratic party has better favorable ratings than the republican party overall. i think there's a case to be made, if mitt romney does not win this election, there will be people pointing fingers at him. i think the fault lies with the republican party, took its image took a turn to the right as far as some voters are concerned in the middle. that romney himself should be able to win. >> can i -- voters vote for people, not parties. so romney, romney's on the ticket, not the republican party. >> i don't know. >> i want to defend gray-faced guys with $2 haircuts. >> where do you get a $2 haircut? >> the crucial gap is a marriage gap. republicans and mitt romney are doing better by almost 20 points among married people, including married women. democrats and barack obama are doing better than 20 points among single women. so that's the crucial gap here. and so that is a question of, that's how
. in this pew poll that is just out, more than a third of voters said their impression of governor romney was improved in that first debate. we know from the usa today gallup poll that the first debate had much more impact than the second and third debates. thought president obama won the second and third debates but it's the first debate that had such a big impression. another thing that strikes me. 47-47, 49-49. in an election that is that tight and in an election where the president is probably. .. has a slightly better standing in the swing states, we could have the kind of split decision we had in 2000. where president obama wins the electoral college and mitt romney wins the popular vote. that is possible with the scenario we see now. >> woodruff: dan, the pew poll also shows that the voters who favor governor romney say they are more interested, more likely to definitely turn out to vote than are those who are favoring the president. >> yes, and that's a very important indicator. and another factor in that, that same poll shows that republicans are more enthusiastic about voting f
/"washington post" poll shows mitt romney ahead of the president by one point. this is razor thin. here's our senior political correspondent jon karl tonight. >> reporter: it's mother nature's october surprise. a storm so big and so destructive, it could throw the campaign's final week into chaos. >> the storm will throw a little bit of havoc into the race. >> reporter: for president obama, it meant canceling two upcoming campaign events and visiting fema headquarters, vowing an immediate response to the storm. >> we're going to cut through red tape, we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. we want to make sure we are anticipating and leaning forward. >> reporter: there are political stakes, too. a chance for the president to show decisive leadership or to take the blame if the response is bungled. all told, 16 campaign events have already been canceled. mitt romney canceled three in virginia, moving westward to ohio, where he met up with paul ryan. >> today, when we get home, put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast, in the wake of this big storm that's coming. let's n
for mitt romney's momentum in the polls. as we saw today, leading for the first time in several weeks. this hurts him in the short run and serve meals president obama, assuming nothing bad happens. if you have a gap like president bush was tagged with during hurricane to treat it could be an issue if the mother right now it favors president obama. really both campaigns are worried about how it will affect early voting internal election day. gerri: some people out there saying that, you know, the people who could be kept from voting booths are people on the east coast and in the northeast a particular hair tends to vote democratic. now, to you, do you think that is an issue? >> well, it could happen, but the outcome, if that were to happen, it is unlikely that it would change any of the lights are of town. he's going to win new york by a zillion points regardless of what the turnout is. what it could do is to press democratic turnout enough that he loses the popular vote and when the electoral vote. that could happen. now, i think it's unlikely. things will hopefully be back to normal
them with a limited time to go. on the other hand, mitt romney can point to national polls and say i've gotten the upper hand since the first debate, so we will see whether the ground games get affected by this. obama's generally considered to have the more extensive and effective ground game. that, of course, is going to be tested on election day, but if some of that is interrupted, he and his people could be affected, and we'll see whether the early vote in places like north carolina, for example, where it matters some and florida is shaken up by this. >> and some that have early voting has been cancelled, larry. who does this hurt more in, your view? which candidate stands to lose the most as a result of this disruption of the campaigning? >> well, it's a very tough call. look, mitt romney has tremendous momentum behind him. not just in national polls. he's got state poll momentum in iowa and wisconsin, for example. today rasmussen just gave him the nod in ohio, that's the first time, so the question you want to ask is does this slow romney's momentum or not? i don't really think
no poll has shown it as close as he says, then you would see mitt romney here. as john mccain was four years ago spending the money that they spent. this is a close race in the sense that all states will be close and this will be a very divided electorate, but pennsylvania remains firmly in the president's call amanda will be delivered by the strong ground game have been building under the leadership of our outstanding democratic chairman and our great executive director. we know how to win elections in pennsylvania on the ground. we are a bottom up party. we understand how to pull it off and we will. iran host: table discussion on pennsylvania politics. josh shapiro is the chairman of the montgomery county board of commissioners, a democrat, and robert gleason, the chairman of the republican party in pennsylvania. we have a phone line set aside for those of you who live in the keystone state. from erie, pennsylvania, good morning. caller: good morning. i have two concerns. if you years back, i had a friend who was disabled in a wheelchair and i pushed him to the voting place of that h
poll shows the candidates are ties, and in virginia a critical state for romney the president is ahead. joining me from washington is nbc deputy political editor dominico. as we look at the numbers crunching them, all these new polls, how do they impact the big picture, and who has the best path to 270? >> when you talk about these new pols out, in particular let's look at ohio. if mitt romney were to win ohio and we go inside the battlegrounds, it makes president obama's path much more difficult. if you give mitt romney ohio and florida and give him virginia, now you see mitt romney's already at 266 even if you were to get new hampshire, wisconsin, he's still not quite there. he needs to win both of these in order to get to 270, which would put him right over 272. romney needs just one of those. if we were to take this out and put colorado and iowa back in, you have virginia. there's a poll out showing president obama up four there. that's 270, even if you were to give romney iowa and colorado, he's at 268. not quite enough, and that's as tight as it gets, thomas. >> thanks so much. i
campaign and the polls are tightening. governor romney makes a speech in iowa as the president has another version of the old plan with better pictures. is the president's definition of fair a reflection of comprehensive enterprise? we began with the benghazi controversy. the explanation does not and up to what we're learning today. fox news has learned cia operatives have a laser target pinpointing the libyan border team attacking the cia and expert but there was no counterstrike. our men were abandoned. joining us now is john bolton. also cia operative michael scheue good to have you both here. >> if i may. lou: why and the world are we not able to get a straight answer overeven weeks about what happened to, why? who was responsible and why is the national media seen at -- seem nothing to be anything but lapdog sat? >> why can't we get a straight answer? the story keeps shifting the administrations does not want to own up to the fundamental problem to deny reality. according to them outside is to be dumb -- defeated dumb -- defeated, copies removal was a triumph. that would require them
at this point. if you take a look at our latest cnn poll of poll, mitt romney with a slight edge over the president right now, 48-47. but take a look at this. we have a new cnn/orc poll for the battleground state of florida. this might surprise of republicans out there who thought mitt romney would be pulling ahead by a more substantial margin at this point. but mitt romney leading the president 50-49 in florida. that state very much tied. look at this poll, wolf, that came out over the weekend that gave some democrats some heartburn out there, from the state of minnesota, a poll showing president obama clinging to a three-point lead, 47-44. and then in north carolina, a little bit of heartburn for the republicans, a poll showing mitt romney and president obama tied up at 45-45. those polls demonstrate why both campaigns are playing it safe right now. they don't want to look too political when you have the mother of october surprises looming there off the coast and her name is sandy. >> yeah. what an october surprise. we have no idea how it's going to impact early voting, who it might
